Connect tv audio input output receiver

Just make sure that you are using cables that are configured correctly physically and check to make sure that you are using the correct analog or digital signal necessary. Your audio settings need to be checked out and set accordingly. Check directions carefully.

Hissing and Humming when trying to use the speakers for the tv

The sony manual tells you how to connect to a TV however most of us now watch TV connected to a SKY box. The Scart lead needs to be connected to the Sky box for the sound to work correctly. Ignore the Manual and connect the Scart lead from the DVD Unit directly into you're sky box. It works fine.

Yes but only through scart cables, you will not get HD because your DVD dose not have HDMI output.

connect up your scart lead, from the scart socket on dvd player to the scart socket on tvyer. There are usually to sockets to connect to on the tv, it will be AV1 or AV2. To view dvd, press source button on tv remote to select AV channel you have connected the dvd played to.

I have an LG LCD TV (LG 37LG5000 37IN). I also have an older DVD Home Theatre System (SONY DAV-DZ100). It seems that the surround system works well with DVDs but I cannot get the sound to work with DIGITAL...

It works fine if you plug the surround system SCART lead into the AV2 input. I believe this is a 'smart' scart plug (same as SONY but it is not mentioned as in the literature). The AV1 is only good for inputs NOT outputs as well.

Audio via hdmi

Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
